. bin laden's trying to take our eye off of the real threat, iraq. >> because they're obsessed. they got to go to iraq! that's what they came to do, start a war with iraq. who cares who's actually going to be a threat to us? look, the c.i.a. had to do a briefing. >> what kind of morons are you? it's not iraq! how stupid are you? it's not iraq! it's bin laden and he's coming. look at this: may one 2001, this is just a partial list, july 29, july 9, july 11 july 24 and the famous one on august 6, they're coming, they're coming, do something do something! you loser you failure. do something! he didn't do anything. that's why he had the stupid look on his face when we got hit reading to the kids, oh, my god they hit us. they weren't just covering their ass. they ignored the intelligence because they had none! >> after the attacks condoleezza rice said: >> this is during the 9/11 commission hearings: >> he made clear to me, that is bush, that he did not want to respond top al-qaeda one attack at a time. he told me he was tired of swatting flies. after 9/11, they call it swatting flies. some o
in geneva. in addition to the foreign ministers of the permanent five we had qatar, kuwait, turkey and iraq there, with the secretaries general of the arab league and the u.n.. and the whole idea was to review syria, not in the competitive sort of where this group supports but to come together to see how we can move forward. and we agreed on the need for political transition and political settlement. and came up with guidelines and principleses for political-- if you wish a road masically saying there has to be an interim government, an interim government that will have full executive power. we need to try and maintain the security forces so that people will be protected and particularly in a situation where they also have chemical weapons. that has to be protected. as well as insurance that governmental institutions do not collapse. nobody wants a chaotic collapse. and everybody agreed. all, and they were to come to new york and endorse that agreement. tha has n been done yet. >> why not? >> i think when they got to new york they did not focus on building on that substantive gain in again
the same logistical force, the same command and control for two land works, iraq and south korea is no longer needing a land force from you in order to protect it, we could do it with air power, what's the new strategy? that's what's missing in in debate. a strategy and force capability metric, not one based on how many ships and aircraft when each can do so much more than before. >> let's go into the military aspect of it a little more. you talk about the difference between a cold war military and a 21st century military. the tactics are different and the nature of victory is different. are we prepared as a military, are we adjusted to the modern way of fighting, or are we not there dwryet? >> no, we're not there yet. for example, china to where the president has rightly shifted the focus in the western pacific, which is the center of gravity for america not just in tec terms of security but our economic interests. it has 80 submarines today. we have 50. do we want to procure another 30 at $2 billion a pop and try to have each submarine find each other like needles in a haystack
don't know about that as someone who lives in downtown manhattan. a lot of us which the iraq war had never happened, but i think had 9/11 not hand, they would have found a way to have the iraq war anyway. you could make the argument that thanks to the work of our troops, and this president, that terrorism has been neutralized more than ever. >> but we don't have hab us corpus now. >> there's that too. for me it is a day that always will remind when people are screaming which side are you on with us or the terrorists. i like to say i'm on the side of anyone who is trying to solve the problems peacefully. >> right. any -- any religion that wants to end violence is fine as long as it's christian. that's your point. >> john: yes as long as it's christian. because violence is okay when my side does it. not religion is responsible hard core right-wing fundamentalists are responsible. >> right. >> john: we see it -- we saw it 11 years ago with the predominantly saudiw terrorists. america was attacked by zero iraqi, and zero afghans. >> yes and the worst attack happened wit
, then we go to iraq, saddam hussein, he was a good boy at one point. we have to learn to shoot straight when it comes to foreign policy. host: i have to get some other voices in here. bob? go ahead. caller: thank you for taking my call. i had a personal remembrances about 9/11. i woke up at 11:00. my mother, who had died of alzheimer's, said i needed to see this thing on television. i was speaking with a friend of mine over at the spartan route. i said -- you know, these guys are muslim fundamentalists and fanatics. they might have their real names on the manifest. go look at that. follow the money. they went back and confirmed what the fbi report said from earlier that year, which had been kind of pushed under. we got lucky in that times square bombing. we solved that one. thank god the bomb did not off. but you know, we have had 10,000 people die in that war. thank god we got osama bin laden and it was a police action. thank you so much. host: how should we mark the day? last night on facebook we ask all of you to comment on how america has changed in the 11 years. host: you can put y
we have to go after iraq. even when this intelligence came in, he said, no, we ought to be attacking iraq. what did you make looking at it? cheney was the intelligence guy in the white house, between bush and the cia guys. he was cutting it off and refining it and using it his way. what did you think of cheney's role in all of this? >> cheney was obviously instrumental, chris. and the administration was driven, i think, from the time it came into office by a very ideological agenda around getti getting saddam hussein and f finishing the work with the neocons and that work, considered the unfinished work from 1991, to get saddam hussein and find a pretense to do it. they were ideologically blinded to what the reality was in these warnings. at best, in curious, about pursuing the hints that were dropped. >> let's take a look at condoleezza rice, who i actually like personally. here she is saying something i'm afraid is always going to be on her record book. here she is testifying before the 9/11 commission. she was quizzed about how much information she discussed with president bush ab
that's a large part of it. it's also the ending of the war in iraq, and in effect how the war in afghanistan is no longer front page news the way it should be and the way it was in the past. certainly the main reason why terrorism has receded as a priority is basically because of the success the administration had against al qaeda. we see a threat far different than on 9/11, it's aa far different and weaker threat. most americans while they deal with some of the annoyance of tsa and other security measures put in place since 9/11, i don't think they feel the press of the threat the way they did a number of years ago. >> roger, i imagine there's not one thing you can name, but obviously people wonder. it is the improvement that is we've seen with tsa, some of the other counterterrorism measures in place and even the viewpoint of the cia, the fbi and counterterrorism agencies now working together? i guess the core of my question is, can you say why we have been so fortunate, so blessed, whatever term you choose to describe it for the attack like on 9/11? >> tamron, it's all of t
th. he also failed to mention iraq and afghanistan. more than 55,000 americans have been killed or injured in those wars but mr. romney didn't think the wars were worth mentioning, in his own speech at his own convention. here's how he tried to explain the oversight. >> i find it interesting that people are curious about mentioning words in a speech as opposed to policy. i have some differences on policy with the president. i happen to think those are more important than what word i mention in each speech. >> do you regret opening up this line of attack, now a recurring attack, by leaving out that issue in the speech? >> i only regret you repeating it day in and day out. when you give a speech you don't go through a laundry list. you talk about the things you think are important. >> you talk about the things that are important. doesn't that include wars in iraq and afghanistan? today one of romney's foreign policy advisers criticized the ambassador campaign for pointing this out saying, quote, it doesn't surprise me that they're raising foreign policy because it's another distra
this is just a false flag operation. bin laden is trying to take our eye off of the real threat, iraq. and so there are presidential daily briefs that are literally saying no, they're wrong. this isn't fake. it's real. >> when a lot of people hear this, aren't they going to say this is another example of where not just the bush administration, but our intelligence community dropped the ball, they failed to heed the warnings that went all the way up to the president of the united states? >> actually, the counterterrorist center of the cia did a spectacular job. and that's what really comes down. in the aftermath, the white house and others said well, they didn't tell us enough. no, they told them everything they needed to know to go on a full alert. and the white house didn't do it. >> senior correspondent john miller, former fbi director joins us now. what do you make of this? >> i think what kirk has stumbled into here is a bit of a well-worn path. we knew some of that. what he has added is the granularity of the actual memos and some of the actual words that were there in front of the white

to this new article, cheney continued to argue that we have to go after iraq. even when this intelligence came in, he kept saying that's not what we ought to be doing. we ought to be attacking iraq. so what did you make of that looking at it. of course, he was always the intelligence guy in the white house. he was between bush and the cia gu guys. he was using it his way. what did you think of cheney's role? >> cheney was instrumental and the administration was driven, i think, from the time it came into office by an ideal logical agenda that was based around gettiget i saddam hussein and that movement. considered the unfinished work from 1991 to go in and get saddam hussein. so they were ideologically blinded to what the reality was here in these warnings. and at best in curious about pursuing the hints that were dropped. >> let's take a look at condoleeza rice, who i like personally. but she's saying something i'm afraid that's going to be on her record book. she's testifying before the 9/11 commission. she was quizzed about how much information she discussed with president bush about the li

's a different type of battle. the unemployment rate among veterans returning from iraq and afghanistan was just under 11% in august. it's higher for those who are younger, and this problem is likely to continue to grow as we draw down in afghanistan, just like we've already drawn down in iraq. it's worth noting that there have been steps made in the right direction. this past summer we passed legislation that'll help veterans get federal occupational licenses when their military training matches the civilian requirements. that was a bill that i had the privilege of sponsoring. it passed the senate unanimous unanimously. it was passed by the house overwhelmingly. it was sent down, and it was signed into law. and last year we passed a bill granting tax benefits to companies that hire wounded warriors, but we have to do more. so we filed this legislation that the chairman of the committee, senator murray, will further explain, and this legislation is to create a veterans' job corps. it's modeled after the civilian conservation corps of the 1930's. the veterans' job corps would put veterans back to
's bill to improve the economy through job growth, including jobs for veterans returning from iraq and afghanistan. the campaign cash race is heating up. president obama was the big winner in august. contributions to the president and the democratic party totaled $114 million. that is the first time the president has outraised his contender. mitt romney and the republicans took in $111 million. romney's campaign currently has $168 million in cash on hand. president obama has not yet revealed the total amount his party has received. the u.s. is selling its majority stake in aig. the treasury department plans to shed around $18 billion worth of aig shares. it's a big move for the government, which bailed out the troubled insurance company back in 2008. shares dipped about 62 cents on the news. overall this year, aig stock is up around 44%, a relief to shareholders now. during the financial crisis aig nearly collapsed. the federal reserve will take the reigns on regulating aig as soon as the government no longer holds the majority stake. black rock, the largest firm that offers exchan

in the wars of iraq and afghanistan in addition to the lives lost including civilians, the financial costs of the wars to the united states is staggering, amounting to almost $4 trillion. in the hours after the collapse of the world trade center, news outlets reported the story among firefighters. an emergency room doctor survived a fall. the man had a name. the country, you remember, clinged to that story. it wasn't long before we learned the story wasn't true. the man identified as living to tell about an 86 story plunge was in the base. all along. a new discovery channel documentary airing tonight shows there was a 9/11 surfer, as he became known. he tells his story for the first time tonight. he fell from the 22nd store of the north tower and lived to tell about it. here is how he remembered the moments before the fall. >> i remember staring at that large free standing wall that was there. it was a fire that was right at the base of that or right on the other side. actually started feeling the heat from the fire. i wanted to regain some sense of control in my life. and, you know, you k

to want to continue this effort. we'll try to do that slow, withdrawal we've been doing in iraq. that is jury still out in iraq how that will all shake out. afghanistan, a much more pessimistic on. we haven't learned much, if anything from the experience the soviets had there we're not seeing that we're going to be able to leave a long-term, stable karzai government. karzai i think himself understands he needs the taliban. otherwise he is swinging from a lamppost putting it in diplomatic terms. once we leave, if karzai hasn't been able to barter and negotiate some fashion with the taliban, i think he is in serious trouble. the taliban, on the other hand, they're not politically stupid. and most of the senior commanders understand, look they have got some leverage right now. the he's wants them to come to the table. karzai needs them to ce to the table. they come to the table. they get some concessions, a cut of money going into afghanistan it will cost us more. melissa: if things change are things better off when the deal gets done? >> i say absolutely not. melissa: that is depr
know where to start. iraq was obviously a tragic detour. afghanistan now appears to be a tragic, endless war. what have we gotten? let's start by talking about what have we gotten right? what have these two administrations who seemed to be polar opposites but now seem to be tied together in their approach. what have they gotten right? >> it actually turns out we've gotten a lot right. you mentioned the fact there hasn't been a real follow-on to 9/11. and it's in part good fortune, in part good work, but also the terrorists lost their base in afghanistan after 9/11. bin laden has been killed. i thought what we saw in the arab world with all of the upheavals that no one was coming out there chanting al qaeda slogans. these guys know how to destroy, but they don't know how to create. they don't know how to inspire. i think in some ways we've learned as bad as 9/11 was, it wasn't a turning point because these guys don't represent an alternative. >> they did not start a revolution with 9/11. and in fact, they've lost the battle for the hearts and the minds of the arab world. >> there
, for that matter, iran and iraq as well trks there are muslims who have admired the united states until we abandoned them. going back to andrew mccarthy's article, the rule of law, he says, has precious little to do with why we have gotten through 11 years without a reprize of 9/11. a better explanation is the terrorists who have been captured or killed cannot commit more terrorism. i'll insert parenthetically, there are terrorists who were captured, some confined at guantanamo bay, some confined at other facilities, who have been released and who have been found again on the battlefield, killing americans. they were captured, prevented from enacting further terrorism, and then released under some false notion that that would win friends and influence people, only to have other americans killed by these same thugs. back to andrew mccarthy's article. he says on the matter of evil, it is good to remember that it exists. evil is not a misunderstanding, a cultural gaffe. or a natural reaction to political policies adopted in pursuit of american interests or israeli self-defense. that brings us
